Colby Almond of 97th Floor recently posted an article which suggests that Pinterest has recently changed their algorithms in a way that may be detrimental to the equal-opportunity nature of the neighborhood.
I'm ALL FOR cutting off spammers. Clearly, someone's figured out how to create bots that grab popular pins, then tack on "Super weight loss program -- click here!" before reposting. But for those of us who use it in legitimate ways for driving traffic to our blogs -- or just as a relaxing hobby that doesn't require purchasing hundreds of dollars of gadgets and materials -- I hope Pinterest finds a way to squash the spammers while keeping the fun and genuine usefulness alive.
I have noticed a change in the traffic from Pinterest to this and my other blog, lately.
I'd love to see Pinterest answer this. Pin this, if you would, too.
